Friends, this is my review of the book A Sentimental Traitor by Michael Dobbs, which I have read recently. Michael is an author who I have read before, just like Mr Forsyth. When I started the book I did wonder if I had made the right choice, but yes I did.
A real page turner, that gives the right balance to the characters, whilst at the same time progresses the plot along in a logical and absorbing way.
So this is another book about Harry Jones, the ex solder with a colourful past who starts the story off as an MP trying to keep his seat in the forthcoming election. At the same time a passenger plane with thirty seven children on board crashes on central London. Sadly everyone is killed, and it is found to have been caused by a missile.
There is also dubious financial dealings, that seem to be leading to bankruptcy for Harry, but on the good news Harry has a new love in his life Jemma Laing a primary school teacher. Can she help Harry solve the puzzle, join the dots and save them from disaster?
As one zooms through this cracking page turner, we find that they are all linked together, especially when one adds in a mix of the Russians and the European Union.
A really good enjoyable story. The only downside was that it was a shame that it came to an end so quickly. This was book 13 week 11 fiction 13 (audio book 3) non fiction 0
